Superfast available now

If there is no symbol on your property, then superfast broadband may be available to you now. This would be either through the completed CSW Broadband rollout or through commercial providers who have disclosed that coverage is planned by the end of 2019.

Because the latter information was provided to us in commercial confidence, we are unfortunately not able to state which provider has said that they will go to a particular area, unless they have given permission for us to do so.

To find out if Superfast broadband is already available at your property, you can use either the BT or Virgin line checkers to see if one of these companies is providing a service now.

The How to use the BT DSL Line checker page on our website contains a handy guide to interpreting the results of the BT checker. We do not have checkers for independent providers, so you may have to ask around locally.

If broadband is not yet available, it should be by the end of 2019. To see whether you are in the CSW Broadband programme you should first check our interactive map. We regret that we have no information about commercial providers’ rollout plans.

If superfast broadband is available at your property, you still need to choose and sign-up to a fibre broadband package in order to take advantage of it. Remember to check different providers for the best rates / packages to meet your needs. Impartial sources of advice include:

You can also use comparison websites to find the best broadband deal for you, but remember that comparison sites work by receiving a commission from the ISPs and so may not list all of the available options. We therefore advise that you try a number of these sites before making a decision, such as:

 

Please note that we are not able to guarantee that your property will be able to access superfast broadband speeds. This is because each property is unique, and there may be circumstances where it is not possible to connect every property in an area to the new network. Any properties remaining would be eligible for inclusion in modelling for any future funding.
